Many types of mathematical models have been proposed in the literature for describing biological populations [6, 19, 28, 69, 80, 82]. One might argue that the wide variety of such models is a natural consequence of the great diversity of the overall objectives for such models. We start by discussing briefly the general modeling objectives upon which this monograph is based.
